I’ve read every single one of Megan Miranda’s adult thrillers, and I’ve been constantly chasing the high of her book All the Missing Girls, which is one of my all time favorite thrillers. When I saw she had a new book coming out, I was so excited!
While a few of her titles truly give me chills and keep me up at night, her latest, Such a Quiet Place, was, as the title may suggest, a little tame and uneventful (in my honest opinion).
The story takes place in a cozy, lakeside town, where 14 months previously a local was arrested and found guilty of murder. Now, just over a year later, she’s been released and returned home, hell-bent on proving her innocence and uncovering whoever was truly guilty of the original crime.
It’s a town where no one feels safe, everyone has secrets, and they all pretend everything is perfectly fine even though they know it’s absolutely not.
Such a Quiet Place is a fairly quick read, and would be great to binge over a weekend or while lounging on a beach. While I didn’t stay up late flipping pages and reading this one, it was an overall enjoyable read, albeit a little slow.
Thank you to the publisher, Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me a digital ARC via NetGalley. Such a Quiet Place by Megan Miranda came out on July 13 and can be purchased wherever books are sold.
Feel free to check out my reviews for two of her other books: The Girl from Widow Hills, and The Last House Guest.
